Court finds claimant lacked good cause to quit because termination not imminent

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The court affirmed the Board’s finding that the claimant was disqualified from unemployment benefits because she left work voluntarily without cause. The claimant was a teacher who left her teaching position in lieu of tenure charges of inefficiency being brought against her. She was offered a paraprofessional position but refused it. The Board found that quitting because of possible disciplinary action did not constitute good cause in this case as there was no evidence that her termination was imminent (Ann T. Seiderman v. Bd. of Rev., N.J. Super. Ct., App. Div. (Unpub. Op.), No. A-0885-17T3, January 29, 2019).
